Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This article addresses the intersection of the food system and public health from the community perspective, based on the work of the HOPE Collaborative in Oakland, California. The HOPE Collaborative initiated intensive community outreach and engagement as part of its planning process to address inequitable access to healthy food in Oakland's most vulnerable neighborhoods. This effort involved two levels of community assessment and an inquiry into the potential of addressing both healthy food access and poverty through the construction of local food enterprise networks. Many unanswered questions remain. However, it seems clear in that in order to reduce health disparities in Oakland's most vulnerable neighborhoods, the community must address inequities in both access to healthy food and access to economic opportunity.
